Kawhi Leonard has sued Nike for the attempt of the apparel company to gain control over his “Klaw” logo. The US basketball player claimed in a lawsuit that the “Klaw” logo that he provided to Nike was completely designed by him out of his imagination. Because of Nike’s control of “Klaw” logo, Kawhi ended an endorsement contract with Nike. He said that Nike didn’t play any role in making the logo but the company tried to gain the ownership of the logo behind his back. Further, he said the company moved to the United States Copyright Office to claim “authorship” and “rights and permissions” of the logo.

The lawsuit filed by Kawhi Leonard stated that he himself designed the logo and then entered the contract with Nike for its marketing. It further claims that there was no participation of Nike in it and Kawhi Leonard prepared his personal logo by keeping in mind his own image. It is clearly mentioned in the lawsuit that before entering into the contract with Kawhi, the apparel company Nike completely agreed to the conditions of Kawhi’s ownership of the “Klaw” logo. However, after Kawhi left Nike in order to sign with New Balance in the month of November, Nike quietly registered the logo in its name in 2017. And when Kawhi noticed this at the end of 2018, he decided to act against Nike. Nike executive, John Matterazzo, has been claiming the ownership of the logo and asserting that it should only be used for Nike merchandise.

Branding with the help of a logo design is one of the great ways to gain popularity for any entity. Many logo design services exist in the world which simply helps companies to market their products. Los Angeles logo design is one such unit which is highly reputed for its marketing and branding services. In the case of “Klaw” logo, Nike is trying to give a stiff competition to its competitor with the use of the popular logo of one of the emerging American Professional athletes. It will be an interesting thing to watch the decision of the court on this subject.

Russian lawmakers have proposed to make it mandatory for internet users to verify their identity with phone numbers before gaining access to email. The State Duma has already made such a rule that put the same restrictions on the use of all instant messengers. The team of lawmakers led by senators Andrey Klishah and Alexander Bashkin, have also proposed to make it mandatory for email services to block messages containing any information that is banned in Russia. This action needs to take place within 24 hours from the time the state authorities notify of the issue.

The draft law’s explanatory note claims, “The adoption of this legislation will significantly reduce the number of false terrorist messages distributed through email services, create the legal conditions for bringing criminals to justice, and reduce the economic damage from such communications.”

The new email verification law will stop cyber crimes in the country and will provide hassle-free Internet service to Russians. Russia’s RuNet isolation law was also passed earlier this year. Senates Klisha and Bashkin were the co-authors of this law. The legislation is now allowing Russia’s federal authorities to command and take control over Russia’s Internet exchange points with the outside world. Russia can not create an infrastructure with the help of this theoretical law to make the country’s internet operate in isolation from the rest of the world. Russia government’s official censor, Roskomnadzor is authorized for running sustainable and safe internet services in the country.
